I am thinking of doing an Executive MBA part time while working but here are the few things I need to figure out:
My job will not pay for it but they are ready to give me days off for studying and exams. I could always try to change compagnies to get someone to pay for it.
The program will take me a little under 2 years to complete.
We are planning to retire in roughly 8 years… I am on the edge, thinking if it is worth it to study 2 years to work another 6 or so.
All my retirement calculations are based on my current income, even without an MBA, it’s just 8 years! (according to plan)
For the next two years, I would have to work full time and go to school every weekend. I work super close from home, school would be a 40min drive…
I have been working full time now for over 4 years, I don’t know how it will be to get back in the books.
Lots of things to think about, what do you think and what was your academic path?
